Slideshow: Spicy Recipes

  1. 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  2. 1 small yellow onion, cut into 1/4-inch dice
  3. 2 cups julienned carrots (about 3/4 pound)
  4. 2 garlic cloves, minced
  5. 2 tablespoons minced peeled fresh ginger
  6. 2 teaspoons Sriracha
  7. 4 cups cooked long-grain white rice (see Note)
  8. 4 large eggs, lightly beaten
  9. 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  10. Juice of 1 lime
  11. 1/4 cup coarsely chopped fresh cilantro leaves
  1. In a nonstick wok or large skillet, heat the oil. Add the onion and carrots and stir-fry over high heat until softened and beginning to brown, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and ginger, and stir-fry until fragrant, about 1 minute. Stir in the Sriracha and cook until the carrots are coated, 1 minute. Add the rice, and cook, stirring constantly, until heated through and beginning to brown, about 3 minutes.
  2. Push the fried rice to the side of the pan to create a well. Pour the eggs into the well and cook, stirring gently, until nearly set. Toss the fried rice with the eggs and cook for 1 minute. Remove the pan from the heat. Stir in the soy sauce, lime juice and cilantro and serve in bowls.
Notes In a pot of boiling salted water, cook 1 1/2 cups raw long-grain rice until al dente. Drain and use right away or refrigerate.
